What’s art got to do with science?

  • Why have scientists always drawn their observations?

  • Why do scientists have to be accurate about what they draw?


The scientist has always drawn

Francesco Redi (1688)

-shot down the Theory of spontaneous generation

-using two flasks containing meat, one tightly closed, the other open to the air (and to flies)

-guess what happened

Malpighi used art to show similarities

Marcello Malpighi (1675)

  • Drew similarities between growth stages of plant and animal embryos

Hooke was an artist too

Robert Hooke (1665)

  • Gave the CELL its name

  • Could draw pretty well too

Sprengel could draw as well

Christian Sprengel (1793)

  • Studied how the wind and insects work to pollinate

  • Charles Darwin thought Sprengel was a genius

Speaking of Darwin

Charles Darwin (1842)

  • a naturalist on board H.M.S. Beagle during its surveying voyage around the world

  • His ‘Theory of Natural Selection’ says organisms change over time

How are all these drawings similar?

How are all these drawings different?

Marie Curie also used art

Who the Heck was Haeckle?

  • Alive at the same time as Darwin

  • Gave the word ‘ecology’ a place in science

  • Named hundreds and hundreds of new species.

  • Made drawing diatoms an art.

Earnst Haeckel,

Loved those microscopic critters

  • Scientific illustration is an important skill in science

  • Make sure to include date, time, location, name, size, color, other observations
